Hackensack Family Law

The practice of family law encompasses a large number of legal problems. Family law disputes include divorce, separation, child custody, child support, alimony, modification of orders, and paternity. Family law judges also hear cases involving estates, domestic violence, surrogacy, adoption, juvenile criminal law and domestic violence. These are very serious issues that can become very complicated. You should consider hiring a knowledgeable Hackensack family law attorney to assist you if you have a case involving any of these issues.

Hackensack Child Custody Disputes

Child custody disputes can be difficult on the parents and the children involved. Sometimes children get caught in between two people whom the children love the most in the world. This time in a child’s life can be very confusing and traumatic if the parties do not have the children’s best interests at heart. The judge hearing the dispute must apply the standard mandated by New Jersey law known as the “best interest of the child” when deciding issues relating to child custody. New Jersey’s custody law, codified in Title 9, allows custody to be joint physical and legal, sole physical with parenting time awarded to the other, or another arrangement.

Hackensack Child Support Cases

A necessary component of child custody is the resolution of child support orders. In New Jersey, a judge rules on a child support order after applying New Jersey’s child support guidelines. The idea behind the guidelines is to distribute the financial burden of child-rearing to both parents equitably. Also, the guidelines operate in a manner that endeavors to alleviate any economic suffering to which the children might be exposed if only one parent shouldered the financial burden of raising a child alone. A non-custodial parent must pay child support according to the court’s order. Failure to pay the child support obligation as ordered can result in severe financial consequences and criminal penalties.

Hackensack Dissolution of Marriage

New Jersey law permits a married couple to dissolve their marriage by divorce. A judge may grant a divorce based upon at-fault grounds such as adultery, desertion, severe and chronic mental illness, lengthy incarceration, or prolonged alcohol and drug abuse. However, the most common form of a divorce proceeding is a no-fault divorce. In New Jersey, a judge must find that the parties have been living apart for six or more months and that there is no hope of reconciling their differences.

As a necessary component of a divorce proceeding, the parties must agree upon property division or argue to the judge about the equitable division of property. Additionally, alimony may be granted by the judge depending on the circumstances of the parties while they were married and what might occur financially after dissolving the marriage.

Time to file a claim for personal injuries is limited to two years after the accident. Therefore, time is of the essence and you must act promptly to preserve your rights.

In New Jersey, a person who is injured or the family of someone who was killed may file a claim based upon negligence. Negligence is the failure of a person to act as a reasonably prudent person would in the same or similar circumstances when the failure to act causes an injury.
